  1. Heya fellas I have a 704z. I have the bailess kit replacing the bail. it has 30 lb Kast king braid spooled on it. Im getting a bunch of wind knots and almost always have my line wrap up around the bail arm when casting plugs under 1 1/2 oz. its a complete nightmare when throwing plugs. But when I use it to throw bait and 4oz sinkers i use a spool of 65 lb power pro. and its an absolute dream. Im kind of perplexed because i originally bought this reel to cast plugs and now im too scared to risk casting anything other than a bomber with it. what am i doing wrong? should i just use mono when it comes to throwing plugs also have noticed the handle and rotor cup begin to turn in the middle of casting
  2. I've been thinking about getting a vintage Penn 704Z and have been following several auctions. But then I saw a super clean Mitchell 406 also for auction. I did some research and it seems as if this might be useful to fish in the surf. Part of the attraction is that the reel looks like it's showroom new, too. So it's not a fixer upper. Selling for about $50. Is that too much? Is this something that I could realistically use in the surf? I researched on this site and I get the feeling that maybe it's more of a novelty. My research on the 704z gives me a better feeling of confidence. Members who talk about the Penn seem to be more enthusiastic about fishing with the Penn. Or is the Mitchell 406 obsolete and only has value as a collectors item? I'm looking for something sturdy that I could fish with- not a collectors item. How hard is it to get the Mitchell's serviced? Or am I better off with a vintage Penn 704z? Thanks for your help!
  3. I'd like to trade any three of the reels pictured for a Boga Grip 30 pound model. All reels are clean and in good fishable condition. You pick. Thanks for the consideration.
  4. Used but in decent condition, mechanically sound. Perfect for modification. $65 each, shipping included. I can accept paypal, google wallet, or a money order.
